School goers to suffer as bus fees to go up by 13% in Mumbai 22.5.2018 DNA: Top News
With the hike in fuel prices, the School Bus Owners Association (SBOA) which runs over 8,000 buses in the city has announced that it would increase the bus fees for school students by around 13 per cent beginning from June 1 2018. Anil Garg, the president of SBOA said, "With the increase in fuel prices, bus owners find it extremely difficult to continue providing the bus service in the same rates. Apart from the increased fuel prices, we also have to pay toll charges even while plying on internal roads. We have no option but to charge parents more to meet the increased costs". Garg said that the revised charges would be applicable from June 1, 2018. With the new rates being introduced at the beginning of the academic year, they will pinch the pockets of parents. "It would really hit parents very hard as they would have to pay the school fees and the increased bus charges at the same time" said Arundhati Chavan, President of the PTA United Forum. Garg said that the government has not given any attention ...

Probe demolition of bus stops 22.5.2018 The Tribune
It sounds unbelievable that the Panchkula Municipal Corporation has spent Rs 9.37 lakh on the demolition of 14 bus queue shelters in the city. The news report, "Panchkula MC spent Rs 9.37 lakh on razing 14 bus queue shelters", in Chandigarh Tribune on May 21, reveals that the MC thought it wise to outsource the work to a private firm at Rs 66,996 per structure. But why? Reasonably speaking, this can't be justified as the task could have been accomplished by its own staff. In all fairness, a special audit thereof must be carried out by an independent agency. Moreover, the proposed new bus queue shelters, to be "blessed" with ultra modern facilities such as an ATM with a security guard, a mobile charging point, public information system, CCTV cameras and a structure open from the sides to ensure the safety of women, may eventually turn out to be some daydreaming. By the way, who will bear the massive "cost" involved in such an over-optimistic project? SK GuptaPanchkula Check noise pollution My elder ...
